IT was the spine of this book I spotted first. The gold lettering jumped at me from the Salvos’ book shelf. I pulled it off the shelf and clutched it to my chest before ducking behind a rack of clothing to take a sneek peek. Oooh. An intake of breath. A quick look at the ticket price of $2.50 and without looking at anything else in the store I made a dash for the counter and shelled out a few coins. Isn’t it lovely? There are long coats, short coats, dresses, wide-legged pants, skirts and shirts and pattern making guides for them all. OK. I admit it. I did spy the length of green fabric too. Doesn't it look like something from the latest edition of Selvedge. The background is Sunday afternoon’s ironing and the last of the weekend’s washing.
